mfoltzgoogle has just created a new issue for https://github.com/w3c/remote-playback:

== [Privacy] Clarify steps to generate callbackId ==
> 2)   It is unclear if the callbackId is derived from a unique identifier on the Callback device (e.g. a hash value of a MAC address). Is there any reason why this could not be generated for each session by the UA? It would still be unique across all callback devices on the network but different devices on the same network could have a different set of unique devices and thus reducing the potential for device fingerprinting.

I think the spec is clear that it's unique to the media element.  Should an algorithm be defined to generate it?
